I have been trying to install gnubatch versions 1.6 and 1.7 on ubuntu 12.10. It is failing on the command:

sudo make install

false || /usr/local/bin/gbch-uchange -R
/usr/local/bin/gbch-uchange: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 127

I have run ldd on /usr/local/lib/ and all seems alright: =>  (0xb7769000) => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/ (0xb759c000)
        /lib/ (0xb776a000)

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Is it possible that you haven't got /usr/local/lib in your /etc/ directories?

You probably want to check it by running "ldd" not on the shared library but on "gbch-uchange" etc.

Sometimes running "ldconfig" again makes such problems go away. There is something mysterious there I haven't quite figured out yet. It might be because they're setuid not to root but I'm not sure.

If you've got as far as that stage in the install everything important is installed. The step of running "gbch-uchange" is only to give the installer user maximum privileges which some people might not want anyhow but you can do for yourself by running "gbch-user -i" as root.
